The General Administration of Press and Publication (GAPP), in a circular on its website, banned anyone with a criminal record and staff outside of news departments in media organizations from applying for press cards. Which means the advertising departments and the tea lady will have to do without.
The GAPP issues press cards — small booklets with the journalist’s photo, organization and identification information — to registered journalists to approved domestic media organizations.
The GAPP ordered media organizations to limit press card applications to their reporters and editors and to exclude administration, logistics, advertising and engineering staff. Damn right.
